Kelly is warm, caring, responsible, communicative person. She has been walking my dog five days a week for 7 months. My dog is a bit timid, but he looooves Kelly. Loves her! Recently she also stayed with my dog at my apartment while I traveled. It was seamless. I’ve also become friends with her over the last 7 months because she is a delight. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

I love seeing these stories of Kelly’s way with nervous dogs; I’ve had the same experience when she was my walker and sitter for my pitbull Logan. Particularly because his anxiety manifests in aggression at times, I was nervous to have someone who wasn’t me taking care of him for an extended period of time when I had to leave town for two weeks.

Kelly is the best. I have an ultra sensitive dog who is usually on edge after spending time with other people. On coming home she was perfectly calm which has never happened before.

In my time at my most recent agency I had a wonderful reputation with my clients for taking the best pictures of their pups and leaving thorough notes of all our fun adventures. Some parents have professionally printed my ...

What Kelly would like to know about your dog

Allergies are great to know (I tend to have a treat or two on hand for rewards!) as well as any history of anxiety or aggression with other dogs/people/children, so I can avoid potential triggers for them.

When Kelly watches your pet

I’m down for a game of tug of war or fetch to get them riled up or to release some extra energy on a more inclement day. And outdoors the sky’s the limit, or whatever the pup’s needs require. I’ve walked dogs who can run laps around Washington Square Park & ones who can’t go much further than around the block. Whatever their needs, we can make it work.
